Deb was born on June 21, 1956 in Sea Level to Harvey Taylor Jr. and Minnie Evelyn. She was affectionately referred to Debbie-Doo by loved ones and friends. She married the love of her life, Manley B. Rose Sr., on June 17, 1989. Deb was a faithful member of Refuge Fellowship on Harkers Island and loved her church family. Her faith was strong and her heart was big. Deb would do anything for anyone and would give anything she had. One example was her constant support of the missionaries. In particular, missionary Fernando Dantes of Global Outreach of Spain stayed in the Rose home every year for the last 15 years when he was visiting the States. Deb found joy in feeding and taking care of people. However, her favorite role was of Nannie and loving on her grandchildren. 

Deb was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey Taylor Jr. and Minnie Evelyn Willis and two brothers, Robert "Bobby" Mitchell Taylor and Wayne Collins Willis.

She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Manley B. Rose Sr; her son, Jesse Taylor; two step-daughters, Bonnie Taylor and Felicia Bland (Jeb); step-son, Manley B. Rose Jr. (Jean); two sisters, Suzette Guthrie (Larry) and Judy Simmons (Robert); many beloved brothers and sisters-in-law; grandchildren, Summer Rose Taylor, Correna Taylor, Rachel Rose, Farrah Robinson, Elizabeth Willis, Mallory Griffin, and Leah Taylor; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. 

While flowers are appreciated, memorial contributions can also be made in Deb's name to her home church, Refuge Fellowship of Harkers Island, or to the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
